Ham and Pineapple Kabobs

Been invited to a cookout and can’t think of anything to bring? Here’s your answer (assuming you’re not a vegetarian… perhaps tofu kabobs?) This recipe is great for last-minute cookouts, too.

Ham and Pineapple Kabobs
1/2 – 3/4 pound of cooked ham, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 (15 ounce) can of pineapple chunks (or, even better, use fresh!)
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp mustard
skewers (if you use wooden ones, make sure to soak them for a few minutes first, so they don’t burn)

Mix all the ingredients together. Add anything else you think sounds good. A dash of soy sauce? A bit of minced garlic or onion? Some smoky paprika? Bit of wochestershire? This recipe is forgiving. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes, but longer if you want.

Thread the pineapple and ham onto skewers and place on the girll, turning frequently. You could baste with a bit of the marinade if you wanted.

Once they’re hot and are starting to carmalize on the outside, they’re ready to go.

Sorry I don’t have any pictures of these, but I’ll just put it this way: the guys started eating them before the rest of the food was even done. Picture ham and pineapple on a skewer, though, and you’ll get the idea!
